    We are trying to record, but the message REMOVE CASSETTE will not leave the screen and it beeps. When we attempt to eject the cassette, it will not pop open. We cannot get the cassette out.

    I cant seem to get my tape ejector to pop out a tape, if there is one in there. The eject button is not working and the tape thing wont pop open. I cant tell if there is a tape in there.

YOUR TAPE MAY BE DAMAGED IF YOU TRY TO OPEN THE CAMCORDER - HOLD EJECT BUTTON DOWN BEFORE ! YOU REATTACH BATTERY THEN READ THE ERROR CODE ? IF IT STILL DOES NOT EJECT .

I had a similar problem with GR-DF570AG. When reattaching the battery in some modes (e.g. with the tape door open, or when trying to play a tape), I could hear the tape motor trying to start. So I just kept attaching and reattaching the battery, in different modes. Eventually, the tape ejected (I think I had the battery door open when reattaching the battery, at this point). Once the tape had ejected, I was able to insert a new tape and it all works fine.

I have a JVC mini DV digital Video camera model No. GR-D295U that was lost for almost 5 years and we found it. The camera had a tape inside and we can see it but the sound like jumps, is anyway that I can...


The battery is very likely BAD (has high internal resistance)! Can you take the battery OUT, and run with ONLY the charge cable attached? Does that make any difference in performance?

The cassette holder wont come up aoutomatically


what you have to do is ejecting the tape, and as soon as it starts to eject , close the door immediately, then safeguard mode should be gone, and you will be able to eject normally.

CAMCORDER GR-DVL167EK


check and see if camera has a reset switch..more likely switch will be where LCD screen is oposite side..hard to tell what happened..also check and see if camera has a lithium back up battery ..if it does remove for about 10 sec..and retry,,sometimes if moisture get into mechanism.a 'safemode" will happen..

Safeguard mode


Eject tape compartment and let it open, remove battery and blow hot air by hair-dryer from 8 inch distance for 8-10 minutes and attach battery and check camera works fine?

2 PROBLEMS WITH MY CAMCORDER


Some video cameras (Sony for example) have a tiny reset button that can be pushed with a tooth pick, and this does a factory reset and usually solves most lock up problems. The button is in an extremely small hole, usually in the side of the camera somewhere, and is marked reset. See if your JVC has one, and if so then try it.

01 error code - unit in safeguard mode


I solved the problem! Open the video cassette door. Look closely at the gear mechanism and see if there is any small debris in the gears. If not, using a magnifying glass and a paper clip(must stretch it out and use the tip) gently move each gear(gently). I had my unit ON. Once I moved the gear it became unstuck and ejected Mini DV cassette. I then re-inserted the cassette and it worked. The dreaded SAFEGAURD MODE message was gone and it is as good as new.
